    Any clue what the pay range would be on this one? Sounds somewhat interesting.

    Funny. Just got through the process of applying for a position that sounded very much like this one. Did the phone interviews,the sports knowledge questionnaire, etc. About a month ago, got a two sentence email saying they had eliminated that position (with a job reference number).

    Maybe they reconsidered.

    I'm questioning whether the pay and/or amount of work would be enough to live off, however.

    A large portion of the compensation is non-monetary, i.e. the right to say you work for ESPN and impress people dumb enough to be impressed by it.

    Otherwise, yeah...

    So it's basically like an internship, eh? OK, fine when I was 25.

    Reminds me of a post I saw recently for what seemed like a great job: SID for a college ice hockey team, along with a few other sports. Read all through the job posting, got semi-excited. Got to the last line: $11,500 for 10 months, no benefits. Aw, shit!!

    This sounds a lot like Ticker when the WWL had a hand in it. $7 an hour to start, but the cachet of saying you worked for them. And if you asked for more money, an exec would take you into his office, show you a folder bulging with resumes and remind you where your place was.

    "We have hundreds who want to work here if you don't," sounds vaguely like "There are children in [insert third-world country here] would do anything to have those vegetables you're not eating."
